Giampaolo Pazzini’s late equaliser denied Real Madrid a much-needed win and intensified the pressure on Zinedine Zidane.
The champions took the lead through Sergio Ramos’ header from a corner – his 50th La Liga goal for Los Blancos.
The hosts caused a shock when they capitalised on sloppy Real defending with Emmanuel Boateng’s follow-up from a Keylor Navas save bringing the sides level.
Oier Olazabal denied Ramos another headed goal from a tight angle in the second half to ensure the sides remained level.
Isco appeared to have won it for the visitors, but substitute Giampaolo Pazzini scored in the 90th minute to earn a point for the hosts.
Keylor Navas 6 – Did brilliantly to deny Morales but then had no chance when Boateng slotted home the rebound. Another good save from Lerma in the second half, but should have kept out Pazzini’s winner.
Dani Carvajal 7 – The full-back was solid at the back and played a part in Isco’s eventual winner as he fed Benzema.
Raphael Varane 6 – Not too taxing a night for the Frenchman, with the exception of Levante’s first half goal.
Sergio Ramos 6 – Opened the scoring by heading home Kroos’ corner. Booked for an elbow on Boateng. Caught out as he played Morales onside for Levante’s equaliser. A bit of everything.
Marcelo 6 – The Brazilian’s form has improved after a big dip but he is still not playing at his top level.
Casemiro 5 – The Brazilian is out of form and having trouble imposing himself on matches, looking sluggish.
Luka Modric 7 – Some good defensive work, including an important block as Levante tried to go ahead in the second half, and Madrid’s best midfielder going forward too.
Toni Kroos 5 – His corner was headed home by Ramos, but the German found it hard to take control in the middle.
Gareth Bale 4 – The Welshman, on the right, had very little impact and was brought off in the 66th minute.
Karim Benzema 7 – Some good link-up play at the start of the game and did well to confuse Olazabal for Ramos’ opener, teeing up Isco for the second.
Cristiano Ronaldo 4 – The Portuguese forward was constantly frustrated, by Levante, by the referee, but ultimately, by himself. A game he would like to forget.
Isco 8 – Came on for Bale and Madrid changed their shape to 4-4-2. He added spark and helped Madrid create more danger in the Levante area, blasting home his side’s second.
Olazabal 6, Coke 7, Pier 7, Postigo 6, Luna 6, Morales 6, Lerma 7 (Marti), Lukic 7, Doukoure 6, Ivi 6, Boateng 7 (Jason 6).
Will Zinedine Zidane still be Real Madrid manager next season?
